HAVE YOU TRIED THE ORIIGONAL TANK? SOME COMPANIES HAVE SPECIFIC TOLERANCES FOR FITTINGS THAT MAY NOT WORK W/ OTHER ITEMS.

Sounds like a problem with the regulator. Try turning on the burners 1st before opening up the propane valve. If that doesn't work unscrew the gas line from the propane tank with the tank valve open a little (burners off) then screw it back on.

SOURCE: Side burner on propane gas grill burns with orange

here is a link to a page that shows what the colors of the flame should look like and what causes the orange instead of the blue flame. http://www.appliance411.com/faq/gas_range_flames.shtml
I would begin by checking to be sure you do not have a spider or a cob web in the burner partially blocking the gas or the air intake.

TURN THE TANK OFF , THEN REMOVE BURNER ASSEMBLY AND CHECK FOR OBSTRUCTION IN THE GAS LINE AREA . IT IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR SPIDERS TO BUILD WEBS INSIDE THE TUBES AND CAUSE MAJOR PROBLEMS

Since your grill only has one main burner and it requires more gas to heat with than the side burner. I still suspect you have a grill regulator issue. But, if you've done your research, you know it's easy to solve. Turn the propane tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank valve and wait at least 5 minutes before reconnecting it. Once it has been reconnected, turn the tank valve on VERY, VERY SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the tank valve is fully open, turn your main burner on, light it and turn it to high. Do the flames appear to be higher than before? If so, light and turn ON the Side Burner. Now do all the burner flames appear to be higher than before? If so, you solved the problem. If not, either the grillhose/regulator assembly needs to be replaced or the Venturi Valve on the main burner needs some adjusting. As the air to gas ratio may be off sightly.

Hope this helps to solve your problem and Happy Grilling!

When I light my grill only one side of the burner has a flame, on all 3 burners. I cleaned everything and even cleaned each hole in the burners. What's next?


This is a common problem with grills purchased after 2001. There is a new safety feature inside the regulator called a 'surge protector'. If you open your propane bottle valve too quickly or if you try attaching a tank with the tank valve in the 'open' position, the propane wants to 'surge' into the grill.

When the propane surges into the regulator (located on the grill hose) the 'surge protector' (inside the regulator) kicks on. When this happens you will not be able to get your grill lit, and if you do, it will be a small blue flame and the grill will not heat up.

So what to do if you trip the surge protector and can't get your grill to light or heat up?

Shut the tank off and shut the valves on the grill off. Disconnect the tank from the grill hose. When you disconnect the tank from the hose you will hear the excess pressure of propane release. This is an indication that you have re-set the regulator's surge protector.

Now that you have deactivated or reset the surge protector, reconnect the tank. Make sure the valve on the tank and the valves on the grill are in the closed and in the off position. After you reconnect the tank to the hose, SLOWLY open the tank valve (making sure the valves on the grill are in the OFF position).

Since you have slowly opened the valve on the tank, the propane did not surge into the regulator and the surge protector did not activate.

Now open 1 valve on the grill and light it. You should get a nice flame. If your grill has more than one valve, open each following valve in sequential order to extend the flames to the other burners.

Thanks for reading and I hope this helps.

Look for spider webs in the venturi tubes, check the orfices or it could be faulty controls. Verify the tank working properly by trying on another grill.

Low flame/ side burner dosen't light


I just read this online and it worked for me. Hope you have similar luck.

Newer propane tanks contain a self regulating feature that will automatically slow down the flow of fuel if it thinks it's too high. This can be solved by turning the tank valve off completely and disconnecting it. Open the control valves (on the grill control panel) and ten close them. Reconnect the fuel tank and slowly turn on the valve. Now light the grill to see if that fixes it.
